-- Heller is currently inside the courthouse and is expected to come out to address the media ... because he can't help himself.

Judge Stephanie Sautner couldn't help herself during Lindsay Lohan's hearing this AM, quipping, "I'm glad to see you're feeling better" -- referring to the fact that she was almost a no-show because her doctor said she had an upper respiratory infection -- which apparently didn't get in the way of her shopping spree last Saturday.

Lindsay reluctantly told the judge in her criminal case she's down with saying goodbye to longtime lawyer Shawn Holley ... and put her fate in the hands of New York attorney Mark Heller, who arrived to court today with a rabbit's foot on his bag for good luck.

A sleepy Lindsay hesitated when Judge Sautner asked if she was comfortable with the change.  Lindsay qualified her answer by telling the judge she was OK with it today, but the judge wanted to know about today and tomorrow ... Lindsay said it was.

Judge Sautner gave Heller permission to rep Lindsay in the lying-to-cops case and Heller then tried to turn on the charm, telling the judge they had a NYC connection since she was once a Big Apple detective.  The judge fired back that flattery would get him nowhere fast.

The judge also laid down the ominous fact -- that Lindsay could be found not guilty in the lying case, and her probation in the jewelry case could still be violated since the standard of proof is lower.

The Judge set March 1 as the next hearing.

FYI -- for whoever cares, Lindsay wore Chanel to court today with Celine shades ... and Louboutins on her feet, obviously.

Dumb, dumb, dumb move axing Shawn Holley. This Heller could review the case for a year and it wouldn't matter. She's still up shyt creek, it's just being dragged out as expected.

Great to know you can lie to the cops in California. All liers should move to lie paradise, doctor's notes not required. You hear that judge, kiss my a--!

I can't quite figure it out exactly, but her face looks like it did a few years ago. Maybe no filler in her cheeks or lower body fat, something is different then her recent look.

This whole court system in California is the biggest joke I have ever seen in my life. No wonder you people have so much crime out there. This system is a pure joke.

A lawyer who relies on rabbit's feet seems more her speed than the likes of SCH. And god, Lohan looks soooo scared straight. NOT. Look at her bloated face smirking and smug as ever.

Shawn Holley is probably dancing around her living room singing Taylor Swift's "Never Getting Back Together" with her party hat on.

She looked like she had been rode hard and put away wet in court today. Her hair looked greasy and stringy. Nasty skank!
